You won't have to redraw the graphics, just make up your own font, which isn't all that hard. If you really don't want to make your own, just make a program that prints every ASCII code in the standard QB font, and then GET each one, BSAVE it into one big file, and then you're ready to use it. If yo...

Okay... well first you'll have to whip up your own font in a graphic editor. You'll probably want it to correspond to the ASCII character codes. Then you want to make a mask of each letter/character of your font. Then you put it on the screen, masked. So as for actually making a PRINT routine for yo...

Did you change the screen mode to whatever mode DosDraw uses? By the way, having that x, y, c crap is too much. You shouldn't have to have the x/y coordinates, just the color of each pixel in seqential order. If DosDraw actually DOES do this (and as I write this now, I'm thinking it doesn't and you ...

Don't use DATA Statements. Icky. Save them as a regular bsave file, and then to load them, use this: DIM Image%(130) 'This is 260 bytes, as each integer is 2 bytes. This is 'enough for a 16 by 16 image. The formula for figuring 'out how many bytes you will need is width * height '+ 4, and that's the...

IDE stands for Integrated Development Environment, and yes, that's what you get when you open up QB. And what do you mean, you can't find it?!? It's right there! Under Binaries, you choose what operating system you're using and click on it! Oh, and why would you post as a different person and ask su...

Well, I finally had some time last night, so I installed QBinux. I must say, I'm looking forward to what it will become. :D I have a few questions... First of all, I noticed some files with an extension of ns5, which looked kinda funny when I opened them in edit. Then I opened the files with the sam...

Well, if the numbers can be between 0 and 255, you could do this: DIM Variables (0 to 39) x = 1 y = 2 'change to whatever the 2 numbers are that you need 'put the variables in FOR counter= 0 to 39 DEF SEG = VARSEG (Variables(counter)) POKE VARPTR(Variables(counter)) , x POKE VARPTR(Variables(counter...

I'm sure it helps, considering the complexity of the music. The weaving of different instruments together, in a way, parallels the brain (in my opinion), and possibly stimulates it to work more coherently.

All of the above is just speculation and idea. :D

What kind of music do we all listen to?

I figured I'd make a thread where we could share our musical tastes with others, and recommend bands and songs. I find I get to know people better when I talk with them about music. So, here I go. Primarily, my interest lies in progressive/power metal. My favorite band for sure is Dream Theater. If ...
